Johnson took to Twitter and raised eyebrows by saying that the NBA locker room is no place for a gay man. What makes his statement so ironic, is that Johnson famously cross-dressed as "Grandmama" as part of his shoe deal with Converse back when he hooped for the Hornets. Nevertheless, while most of the NBA rallied around Jason Collins and his decision to come out, Larry Johnson fired off a series of tweets voicing the opposite; and showing us that wasn't nearly as good in the classroom, as he was on the court. Don't get it twisted, Larry Johnson has every right to have any point of view he so chooses -- but being currently employed by the New York Knicks his former team as part of their business operations staff, this probably isn't the best Twitter-hole to have dug himself into. I still can't get over the fact that someone who cross-dressed as a basketball playing grandmother would feel this way, lol. Oh, and what's even more ironic is Converse's tag line at the end of the commercial.

Powered by WordPress. I could switch to Nike tomorrow and Jay would be completely cool with it. There are only a couple of athletes Jay-Z was cool enough to let in his little small circle of people that he calls friends. It goes beyond me just wearing clothes. We just happened to hit it off. I definitely got cussed out for that one.
Former NBA Star Larry Johnson Says Gay Men Don’t Belong In Locker Room
From AP-.

As Johnson was releasing his apology, a national gay rights advocacy organization called on the league and the team to take disciplinary action against the two-time Pro Bowler.
Thank you very much for re-publishing this article, which I find extremely interesting for the light that it sheds on the history of the "ex-gay" movement and its vicissitudes in the early years. I was in the Grindstaff's home in Saugerties, N. I was also on staff for about 5 years.
